Graveside services are set for 10:00 A.M., Saturday, January 17, 2015 at Oakhill Cemetery in Whitewright with Mr. Phillip Smith officiating.

Bobby was born on January 2, 1937 in Fannin County to parents James Lennis Clark and Leola Fay (Winkle) Clark. He attended school in Whitewright, where he excelled in football and graduated with the class of 1954. After high school, he enlisted in the United States Navy and served his country honorably from 1955-1959. On May 19, 1957, he married the lovely Sarah Ann Clark. He and Sarah were blessed with three sons, Terry, Jim and Rod. He taught his sons a strong work ethic as they watched him farm his land, just as his father and grandfather had done before him. His family and friends knew him as one with an honest character who was kind to his fellowman.
Bobby is survived by his family of three sons: Terry Clark and wife Georgia of Whitewright, Jim Clark and wife Kay of Denton, and Rod Clark and wife Lori of Norman, Oklahoma; brother, Jim Clark and wife Gail of Whitewright; eight grandchildren: Lauren Ross and husband Rodney, Bryan, Kyle and Dylan Clark, Austin, Tyler, Victoria and Jackson Clark; two great grandchildren, Mckenzie and Rylan Ross. He is also survived by loving nieces and nephews, and close friend, Barbara Hughes. He made a positive impact on all of these whom he leaves behind.
The family will receive friends from 6-8 P.M., Friday, January 16, 2015 at the Mullican-Little Funeral Home in Bells/Savoy. The online guestbook may be signed at www.mullicanlittle.com
